Unbound Global, a platform for the world’s leading brands and corporations to meet with founders and entrepreneurs from around the globe, were hosting their annual innovation festival in London. The event, which included an exhibition and multiple conference stages demanded the latest in AV technology. Light Fantastic Production Services Ltd, trade supplier to the live event, exhibition, and television industries were tasked with delivering the creative design & technical production. The focus of the festival was the main conference stage for 400 delegates.
Light Fantastic were looking for an impressive display solution to match the calibre of global leading brands that would be attending this event. The venue presented a very wide but low space and so the set design incorporated a large 14mtr x 3mtr projection surface. After thorough research, Light Fantastic decided that the new Epson Laser Projection range would suit this event perfectly. They needed a product that could deliver crystal clear visuals and be deployed quickly to suit an extremely tight build schedule. As such they decided to opt for two larger 25k projectors over four smaller 12k units.
The show content includes bright and colourful video content and graphics - With 25,000 lumens of brightness and a high contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1, the Epson 25K was the perfect tool to produce stunning image quality on the large canvas.
WHAT WE DID
PSCo, trade only rental partner, worked with Light Fantastic to supply the latest in AV technology to suit the brief. They provided two EBL25000U, 25,000 lumen projectors which were used to edge blend across the large canvas. The canvas was 14m x 3m and produced a near 4K resolution at 3386 pixels wide.
PSCo provided the full rental package, and accompanying the projectors were two ELPLU05 short throw lenses, frames, and hanging adapters.
Prior to the event, Light Fantastic attended the Epson Pro AV Academy at PSCo to get background knowledge and hands on training with the full Epson projection range.
Rob Myer, director at Light Fantastic, commented on the project: “For such an innovative and exciting event, we needed a technology that could match this. The Epson laser projectors worked perfectly, they were cost effective, produced a stunning image, and were easy to install and line up. It was an extra bonus that we attended the training a couple of weeks prior to the hire. The opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with the units in advance of the show was perfectly timed and really beneficial.”
